I have always loved those old TV series with futuristic tech in those futuristic vehicles, like Knight Rider, Air Wolf, Street Hawk etc. So it got me thinking about how easy it would be to add a computer to a vehicle. Now I know its been done before and a quick Google search shows multiple websites and companies making very complex car and other vehicle computers, but at a large cost.

Well I thought my Raspberry Pi is the perfect device for this.

  • Its cheap
  • its very small
  • small power requirements (runs off a micro USB car charger)
  • flexible video and audio outputs (HDMI and Composite RCA for video, HDMI and 3.5mm audio jack for audio)
  • and best of all you can change operating systems by simply switching out SD cards

Below is a photo of the Raspberry Pi running the excellent media centre type operating system Raspbmc which is perfect for browsing and playing your media collection using a media centre remote or something similar, as shown in my ‘shopping list’ below.
